I took a chance on a book with no reviews or ratings and I was very satisfied. As someone interested in character design this book did give me a little extra to think about in terms of how darkness and cute work together. However the book is a little repetitive even though it's only over 3 hours long.

It's not perfect, but I'm gonna give it five stars anyway because I don't want to scare people off from buying it, it's a nice book that made me think about something I rarely ever think about and I'm surprised it's not more popular.

The Power of Habit audiobook cover art

Way Too Much Fluff

Unfortunately this audio book wastes a lot of your time by telling stories loosely thematically related to the central ideas of the book. These stories could have very easily been summarized but instead are drawn out and this makes up the majority of the books content which means it mostly is a waste of time. Some of these stories have aged embarrassingly for example Michael Phelps is given as an example, who dominates because of his habits, but we now know that he was drugging. What makes the fluff of this book so much more frustrating is you will likely have a hard time retaining what information the book does offer as you will be drowned in all these stories.

The narrator has a great voice, but YouTube videos talking about this book are more concise then the actual book. You will gain no new information by buying the book. There is NO extra information you are going to find here.

The majority of this books seven and a half hour run time an upwards of six hours is spent detailing different corporations and business and gushing about how they do things. With each new example Chipotle, Tiger Woods, General Motors it's all the same detailing the companies histories, their slogans, gushing about how beautiful their faculties are and how tasty their food is, it sometimes actually comes off more like an advertisement for the companies mentioned. Each example is so similar you probability won't retain any of it and won't even have the sanctification of knowing trivia about the companies.
